Another Customer in the Spotlight

A late night for me .... not sleeping too good, so thought I would share this stunning card with you all.
Mina's blog is absolutely gorgeous. Coloured with distressed inks. Many card makers seem to be using these a lot. I personally still haven't tried them. I think its time Tammy went and got herself a few to play with. click on the teddybo image above and take a look at the full card. It's good enough to eat.

Challenge 3 # IN THE PINK

It's another Teddy Bo Tuesday ~ Gosh where haveq the last two weeks gone?
The theme for this week's challenge is ~


so your main colour MUST be pink of course.

The only requirements from you are the following ~

You MUST use a Teddy Bo or Bea image on your card. You can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice as long as the main image on your creation is a Bo or Bea, you will then qualify to be in the draw for the fab prizes. And remember NO back linking, new projects/cards only please. The challenge closes on Friday 18th Feb.

Before we get on to the winner and top 3 for our last challenge, we would like to thank each and everyone of you for entering. Your cards have been amazing - Gayle is gob-smacked at the talent you ladies have. Your colouring, from distress and copics is out of this world. Your cards have put mine to shame.....I think I will definitely have to try distressed inks. The finish is so incredible.

So then.......the winner of the SEEING DOUBLE challenge is.........

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Please contact us for your McMahon Five Designs $15 Gift Certificate.

The top 3 cards are as followers ~ Number 8 ~ KATHY Number 12 ~ RICA Number 15 ~ ELLEN

Please let us know what digi stamp you would like and we will send it straight away. We are in the process of designing top 3 badges and winner please 'bear' with us. We will send you one as soon as...(note to Gayle, get your finger out!!!) ;O)

Also we have a Guest Design Team Call, so anyone interested please, please do get in touch.

Our Sponsor this week is ~ Bearly Mine Designs. The lovely Donna is offering the winner 2 digi sets of their choice. Her papers are fantastic and print beautifully. I use them a lot on my cards. Do go over and check them out, if you have never seen them before.

Now on to the Design Team Cards

Debbie's card is first lovely is this fold? The bears have been coloured with pro-markers ~ colours used are satin & putty.
Bea's dress is Blossom and grumpy Bo is pretty in Rose Pink.
Papermania Scrumptious paper, letters have been cut with Round-a-bout Sizzix alphabet, Smirk ribbon & flowers cut with Joy Craft die.

Next we have Lisa's card. How delicious are these Marianne Design Paper's? " Bea Swing "
again has been coloured with pro-markers ~ tan, caramel, pale pink & baby pink.The sentiment is from Pink Gem Designs

Claire's card is so adorable with Bea dangling in the centre. Bea is held on by an earring hook....what a great idea. She has used lots of bright pinks and added some green. Again the bears have been coloured with pro-markers.

Next up is Colette's cute gate-fold card. I would never have thought about placing Bo behind the swing, making it look like he is pushing Bea. I would have used him for a Christmas card. Isn't it brilliant how every crafter thinks differently, no two are ever the same...amazing. Colette has used digi papers, edged with a pink ink pad. Bea's swing is actually attached by a brad, so she can actually swing from side to side. Do check out her blog for more photo's.

Finally there is my card. I have used Teddy Bo " I LOVE YOU BUNCHES ". I love the pencil look of this digi stamp. Again, he's been coloured with pro-markers and the papers I have used are Papermania

( Henbury Lane ). I picked the first few challenges and you know what? I had NO pink backing papers. So off I had to go to the Hobby Craft and buy some. Must say these papers are rather lush!

So then crafters, let's see what you're all going to come up with for this challenge.


Loads of Love

Tammy & Gayle

Sharing a quick card......

 Good afternoon Teddy Bo & Bea fans. 
It's Teddy Bo Tuesday, which means new digital stamps in the store. Do pop over and check out what the bears have been up to. We've got " Teddy Bea Bee " , " Di-Bo-saur " and much much more.
For my quick card I used " Bea Swing " and coloured with pro-markers. I have kept to soft pastel colours.
Paper's are from a digital download which I have had for years. Found them on my external hard drive. I did a search for the maker but cant seem to find her, so I guess she no longer designs them. They are so lush and of course my favourite colours. Small flowers are from my stash and I think I purchased from the NEC. Small buttons were added as I felt the card looked a little plain. Unusual for me not to have a bow of some sort.
I have left a sentiment until I have decided whom the card is for.
We've had 15 entries for the challenge so far. Come on folks get card making. Lets see your creations!
Well, best get some house work done.....don't want everyone knowing I have sat on my bum all morning making cards LOL.
Happy Crafting. Enjoy the new stamps.
